    Top Three Coffee Spots of the Week (Round 4)

    Our recent move to the west of Singapore was met with a bit of dismay from my east coast coffee buddies. I’ll have to admit a bit of trepidation on my part because I had so many firm favourites in the east. Now, having settled in the west, I am finding great little...
  • A Novice’s Guide: Making Your Own Sourdough Bread at Home

    We had brought sourdough starter over with us about 5 years ago. We got our starter from my husband’s brothers who have their own business in Australia making the best sourdough pizzas from their custom-made, wood-fired oven. (Well worth a try if you’re in Sydney – they cater and will...
  • Top Three Coffee Spots of the Week (Round 3)

    So many cafés, so little time! I love when I find a new place and these three, I have never been to before. I went to one for a meeting, the next was to catch up with a friend and the last was a quick escape from a house full of...

  • A Helping Hand – the Cookbook in English & Tagalog

    As an avid recipe and cookbook collector, I was intrigued when Frog Michaels approached me at the school café with her hot-off-the-press cookbook, A Helping Hand: Delicious Recipes in English & Tagalog. I had briefly met Frog at an event so when I read the name on the cover, I...
  • Bench at Dapper Coffee

    Dapper Coffee

    It was over a year and a half ago and perhaps it was all the wood panelling and old lanterns but I’m pretty sure that crusty old sailors never got coffee this good! One could turn their nose up at the hodge podge of bits and pieces. I have...
  • Chye Seng Huat Hardware coffee and friand

    Chye Seng Huat Hardware

    Today I revisited Chye Seng Huat Hardware. It was 2013 when I last was there. Back then it was all the rage, with every other person who was talking about coffee also talking about CSHH. But who could blame them. Home to Papa Palheta, one of the best coffee roasters on the...
  • Discovering Small Boutique Wines at Merchants Wine Store

    Ainslie and David never thought they would end up running a co-operative model wine store in Singapore when they started their jobs in the corporate world years ago. After almost 20 years in corporate, they decided to try their hand at their own business. Their concept, Merchants Wine Store, began...
  • Luxe Singapore

    Luxe Singapore

    I’m dying to go back and try their coffee and brunch, but on the evening that we went, we were there for dinner with friends (without all our kids in tow – hooray!). Being one of the restaurants in the Eat Singapore Book was also a bonus. (I’ve been to 3 now, 9 to go!)...
